Drew Barrymore Spends $5.7M in Montecito

Drew Barrymore hoodwinked the Hollywood real estate gossips for a short while this week when they announced she had purchased a 5-bedroom home in Montecito, Calif. Unfortunately, it turned out to be the wrong one. The actual home Barrymore bought for about $5.7 million is a 1937 Monterey colonial that was last listed for $6.9 million.

The 6,000-square-foot L-shaped home (pictured below) has six and two-half baths and three fireplaces. The dining room, with dark walnut floors and large windows, opens to a glass-enclosed lanai overlooking a backyard terrace.

The Realestalker wrote that earlier reports identified the wrong house as being hers.
